For Halloween, mix up a whole bunch of this fall-flavored punch by bartending veteran Phil Ward.


  • 1 sugar cube
  • 2 whole cloves
  • 3 ounces club soda, divided
  • 2 ounces Flor de Caña 7-Year-Old Grand Reserve rum
  • Pinch of ground nutmeg
  • 1 ounce lemon juice, freshly squeezed
  • 2 ounces apple juice
  • Garnish: apple slices
  • Garnish: cinnamon stick
  • Garnish: pumpkin seeds


This recipe serves 1 as written, but can be multiplied to fill a punch bowl. Top each individual portion with club soda when serving.

  1. In a mixing glass, muddle the sugar cube, cloves and 1 ounce of soda until the sugar dissolves.

  2. Add the remaining ingredients and ice and stir until well-chilled.

  3. Strain into a punch cup.

  4. Top with the remaining 2 ounces club soda.

  5. Garnish with apple slices, pumpkin seeds and a cinnamon stick.
